The hustle and bustle never stops at Golden Palace Seafood Restaurant. Whether it’s carts filled with steamed dim sum making their way to hungry customers, or a large party utilizing the restaurant’s upstairs venue, the Chinatown eatery is lively, with staff members always ready to serve their diners.

Enjoy dim sum from 7 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. every day, or choose amongst Golden Palace’s menu items, such as Shrimp with Mixed Vegetables ($8.95). This shareable dish includes jumbo shrimp, straw mushrooms, Chinese snow peas, carrots and broccoli. All of these fresh ingredients are cooked in a light brown sauce with minced ginger and garlic, and served steaming hot.

With many more dishes like Shrimp with Mixed Vegetables on the menu, it’s no wonder why customers continue to choose Golden Palace for both their casual and celebratory occasions.

In preparation for the Ching Ming Festival, which will occur April 4, Golden Palace will be selling bai-san sets, which will include various food offerings for the special day. The festival is translated as “Tomb-sweeping Day” and is a time to clean up the gravesites of loved ones and send gifts and well wishes to them in the afterlife. Manager Gary Lam reminds customers that they may start ordering their bai-san sets now.


Golden Palace not only provides a great dining atmosphere, but also delicious food to match. Lam’s father actually prepares the salted fish for one of the restaurant’s most-favored menu items, making Salted Fish with Diced Chicken Fried Rice ($6.95) a no-brainer for any meal. Bits of salted fish flavor the jasmine rice perfectly, while the addition of chicken, peas, shredded lettuce, eggs and green onions make this item a must-have.
